Used & New Pallet Rack Design Solutions & Systems.
Different types of storage facilities obviously require different types of pallet rack designs to make the most of their storage space and efficiently streamline their process flow. EasyRack.com specializes in designing used and new pallet rack systems for businesses throughout the United States. Each type pallet rack system offers unique advantages and benefits to different types of industries, business models, and operational demands.
Conventional pallet rack designs are ideal for warehouses that categorize a large number of pallets according to a wide range of sku numbers. They help warehouses and distributors maintain better control of stock by facilitating quick, direct access to each individual pallet. Conventional pallet racking can be built in standard single-depth design, or it can be built as a double-depth system for tight spaces where pallets must be placed two deep on the rack.

The live pallet racking design works very well for distribution centers that are dealing with perishable items such as food or pharmaceuticals that require frequent and rapid removal of pallets from the rack. These operations prefer the live design because it not only consolidates space, it also speeds up operations. When a pallet is removed from the rack, the pallets behind it slide down a gravity-incline flow at a controlled, predictable speed. This allows them to be picked up more quickly and loaded onto trucks.
In some storage centers, there are so many different types of items that companies have to group each item type by pallets and groups of pallets. These centers often store these items for long periods of time with very slow turnover (this is often the case in retail distribution centers and warehouses). With so much merchandise in storage, space becomes a very rare and precious commodity, and requires the most efficient pallet rack design possible to make the most of every square inch. For these companies, a drive-in storage system usually is the only way to go. When built correctly, it can possibly convert up to 85% of wasted horizontal AND vertical space into consolidated storage areas. The drive-in design also eliminates the need to waste floor space on separate aisles. With this type of pallet racking, all that is needed is one or two access points for forklifts to drive into the store and retrieve merchandise.
On the other hand, some operations have too little space, too many products, along with a HIGH homogenous turnover. Their warehouses are constantly filling up and being emptied again. For these companies, EasyRack.com designs push-back pallet rack systems that consolidate space and maximize turnaround time with non-motorized mechanical features. Trolleys that move along inclined, rolling rails slide pallets down to fill the gap. All loading and unloading is done from the central aisle, so push-back systems, like drive-in racks, do not require multiple aisles for access points.
In still other cases, such as cold-storage facilities, pallet racks require a combination of limited, individual aisle space combined with a high level of mobility for individual, rapid pallet access. The most practical and efficient pallet rack design for these operations is mobility racking. A mobile rack sits atop a motorized base that will rotate upon command, bringing pallets that need to be retrieved into position for quick, safe, and easy retrieval. These racks are built with a number of electronic controls and safety features that make them simple and safe to operate either manually or remotely through a computer.
